The Experience

2018 Mad Science Summer Camp Catalyst

Half-day science workshops: 9:00am - 12:30pm, M-F, July 16-20 and July 23-27

Location: Loyola University of New Orleans, Monroe Hall, room TBD

General registration is CLOSED

Explore, investigate, get inspired, and have fun! 

Mad Science camps offer a daily combination of in-class discovery and exploration and hands-on applications of the scientific principles presented.  Your child will be able touch, see, hear, smell and taste what science is really all about.  We use simple, real world science techniques that allow even the youngest of campers to enjoy our learning environment.  Campers create, build and assemble a variety of take-home projects while exploring how science affects the world around us.  Children have so much fun that they forget they’re learning!  

  • Children ages 5-7 and 8-10. Please note that the child must be the minimum age required by the time of the camp.
  • Camps are daily, Monday-Friday, 9:00am -12:30pm

July 16-20:  Super Senses Camp

 

Mad science invites you to explore your senses with our exciting camp. Following are some topics you will explore during this fun five-day camp. These are only a sample of some of the activities that you will be doing each day. The topics will not necessarily follow this order. However, each of these topics will be included at some point in the camp.

 

Lights…Color…Action! Celebrate the science of color! Split your name in ink and reveal numbers with color filters. Make a rainbow out of white light and try on diffraction lenses. Color the world with your very own Technicolor Blender to explore how light and color combine.

 

Mission: Nutrition Step into some healthy habits! Put together a food pie and lay out a perfectly proportioned meal. See how much energy burning calories can give you. Clip on your Step-O-Meter and walk on to support a healthy lifestyle.

 

Optical Illusions Work against your eyes! Trick your brain with lines and coils. Discover how mirrors and their reflections can play tricks on what you see. Try to touch a mirage. Make a Periscope to see above and beyond and discover how mirrors work to create images.

 

Sonic Sounds Uncover the source of sound! Tap into sound wave transmission and fill your ears with vibrations. Create a story with sound effects and change the pitch of your voice. Use your Sonic Horn to make some noise….a lot of noise!

 

Tantalizing Taste Exercise your sense of taste! Magnify your taste buds and unplug your nose. Compare flavors with your friends and try a carbonated test challenge. Sort out the scents in the Scratch ‘N Sniff game and discover how your nose and sense of taste are partners.

 

July 23-27:  NASA: Journey into Outer Space

 

Mad science invites you to journey into outer space exciting camp. Following are some topics you will explore during this fun five-day camp. These are only a sample of some of the activities that you will be doing each day. The topics will not necessarily follow this order. However, each of these topics will be included at some point in the camp.

 

PLANETS AND MOONS In Planets and Moons, children use models to understand the relative size and distance of objects in our Solar System. They experiment with eclipses and learn how gravity plays a part in our exploration of outer space. The children experiment with a magnet-based gravity assist game to send steel marble probes across their Solar System playing board.

 

SPACE PHENOMENA  Space Phenomena introduces children to phenomenal space events and the tools used to observe them. Children investigate asteroid impacts and meteors, learn to use lenses and mirrors to refract and reflect light, and explore the composition and nature of comets.

 

SPACE TRAVEL In this class, children learn about the propulsion systems employed for space travel. The children will participate in inquiry-based discussions and multiple hands-on experiments designed to introduce children to the concepts of propulsion, thrust, action/reaction, aerodynamics, rocket construction, the stages of rocket flight, and more!

 

SPACE TECHNOLOGY This after-school program introduces children to space related technologies, including those used on Earth to aid space exploration and the very scientific principles of space travel. Engaging demonstrations and exciting hands-on activities will make this investigation of Space Technology a fun learning experience.

 

LIVING IN SPACE  This class puts children in the boots of an astronaut. Children explore the various demands and challenges facing astronauts in space, and the Mission Control team who supports them from the ground. Children then investigate astronaut training, mobility, and life support, and experience astronaut life for themselves as they participate in a space station building mission.
